Exotics Officially Launches New CBX Iron-Wood

Published

on

A little more than a month ago, we spotted PGA Tour players testing Tour Edge Exotics’ new CBX Iron-Woods on the range at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Now, we know all the details on the company’s latest utility irons.

The CBX Iron-Woods are designed as an alternative to a golfer’s hybrids or long irons. Their hollow-bodied design gives them an iron-like look, but their unique, rounded soles helps them glide through the turf like a hybrid.

What the CBX Iron-Woods are really about, however, is distance. The utility irons offer a new, L-shape club face design that features a high-tensile HT-980 steel. It pushes the CT (characteristic time) of the clubs, and measurement of spring-like effect, to the legal limit set by the USGA, according to Exotics. The bottom of the L-shape club face also acts as a “hinge,” allowing the entire club face to flex at impact. The design allowed Exotics to make the leading edge of the club thinner, promoting more consistent distance on shots contacted across the club face.

“Our test results show that achievement of the maximum CT measurement produces irons one club stronger than current distance irons, which makes the [CBX Iron-Woods] a great replacement for hybrids,” the company said in a press release.

The CBX Iron-Woods will begin shipping on September 12 in four lofts: 2 iron (17 degrees), 3 iron (19 degrees), 4 iron (22 degrees) and 5 iron (25 degrees). They will come in two finishes: Stainless Steel ($199.99) and limited-edition Black Peal ($249.99). The stock shafts are the Project X HZRDUS series and Mitsubishi Rayon’s Kuro Kage Silver Dual Core.

    “FORGED CUP-FACE” ….. and cast steel clubhead body!
    This is truth in labeling, not like TM falsely labeling their P-790 as “forged” when only the faceplate is forged.
